RE: NO IDEA WHAT ALL THESE OPTIONS ARE, help?!
Nitrous: getting some good flavor, just taking slower hits and opened the air flow a little. hard to really tell what its supposed to taste like, it says "gummi bear" lol. 

about about the initial ohms  question? do you know if that affects just standard wattage vaping or only temp control? i see the volts do affect wattage vape, i turned it down to 6 and upped the wattage to 30. getting some very thick clouds, no burnt flavor, i might be vaping too much too so the sensitivity to taste is not as good, that has something to do with it im sure. just worried about the ohms now.

RE: NO IDEA WHAT ALL THESE OPTIONS ARE, help?!
Here's a quick breakdown of how Ohms law works. The below example is for .5 Ohm coil in power mode. You would set your mod, in power mode between 27.38 and 35.28. You can vape lower or higher, the only consequence is vaping at a higher wattage will burn up your coil more quickly. No need to worry about Ohms, most premade coils have this range stamped on them. The volts below are the range for the average 18650 battery which is used in most regulated mods.

Ohm's Law : Watts = Volts * Volts / Ohms
Example:
Low End ........................................................... High End
. W = 3.7V * 3.7V / 0.5Ω .................................... W = 4.2V * 4.2V / 0.5Ω
. W = 13.69V / 0.5Ω ........................................... W = 17.64V/ 0.5Ω
. W = 27.38 ....................................................... W = 35.28

There is a Wattage mode and a Voltage mode. If you change the Wattage, Voltage will change automatically because of the Laws bibliora mentioned. So you can't play with both of them. Stay on the Wattage mode. As the others said, start at 20W and get lower or higher till you find the right spot.
Do not expect gummy bears to fly off your tank, but if you feel a burnt taste, you probably burned the coil so you better change it. Never use a burned coil, it is not good for you. That's one of the main things you have to keep in mind when you vape. If you bought a 10$ pack of cigarettes every day when you smoked, you can even buy a 2$ coil once in 7 or more days.
And after becoming familiar with the Wattage mode, you will find youself exploring TC mode, reading stuff and asking questions here, but now just keep enjoying your vape at Wattage mode. Wish you the best with your new kit Smile

Hi Norjak71 Welcome to TVF we wont tell you to go elsewhere you can ramble all you like. As many have already said stick to wattage mod for now, just ensure the coils are intended for wattage use. There are no stupid questions just questions that need an answer... Scratch_one-s_headGood

Vaping Saves Lives. To vape is to advocate..

We really should start a "what's the stupidest question you have been asked about vaping or vaping related" Smile Not genuine help questions, just stuff like "since most people vape sweet ejuice, aren't they worried about getting diabetes or cavities?" Tongue

FB, I can just look up my first posts, that would get the thread started.

Hi Bibs - You are a real star - you take lots of jibes here and come back smiling. I hope your prolific posting continues into the new year. You and Umi make a big difference to the forum - long may it continue.[Image: smile.gif]

That's why I was deliberate in my post when I separated the inference between asking innocent questions on "how-to" or anything vaping related vs the the questions that once the person asks them, you quickly realize that person is obviously a Darwins theory exception..... Tongue

RE: NO IDEA WHAT ALL THESE OPTIONS ARE, help?!
My favorite stupid question was when someone got on here asking for the best RDA build below 0.05 ohms, for a tube mech mod. Though that really isn't a stupid question per se, just a really stupid idea. I quickly educated the fellow on why building that low on a tube mech was such a terrible idea, and I don't think he's been on the forum since. Hope he didn't blow up. 

Norjak, welcome to the forum! Like the other folks said, there are no stupid questions, just questions that need answered. Everyone starts somewhere, and you can't be expected to learn all about vaping, Ohm's Law, temp control, and everything else all when you're just starting out. 

Temp control uses nickel, titanium, or stainless steel wire for the coils, and measures the fluctuation in resistance to calculate how hot the coils are getting and only supplies more power to the coils when they are below the temperature threshold you set. A lot of people love TC mode, but it's more complicated and has a steep learning curve for beginners. PaulS did a great intro to TC in the FAQ section here on the forum, you might want to take a look at that if you decide you want to try out TC. But for now, I'd say the best thing you can do is keep using power mode. And of course, any questions you have, feel free to ask. Chances are good that every single one of us has asked the same question at some point, asking questions is how we learn. 

As for the question you asked about setting ohms: that's only for TC mode. In power mode, it automatically detects the resistance (ohms) of your coil, and uses that in the wattage/voltage calculations. In TC mode, you need to set the resistance with the coil at room temperature as a baseline, since the mod measures changes in resistance to calculate the temperature of the coil. It's all a bit complicated and in my opinion not really worth it, but of course there are a lot of people who really love TC so if you decide to try it out we can always help with that. 

Can you tell that I'm the talkative one? Tongue

That raises a question Michael - if the settings are calculated on the "room temperature" component (if that is a literal calculation) and some of us being this far north of the equator, should it not require a different calculation if I was vaping in TC mode outdoors with such a variance in "operating conditions"? Sad
